M53: Mafia 1 Redux

#1 Post by Chaqa » Sun Feb 16, 2020 11:17 pm

WebDip Mafia 53: Mafia 1 Redux

Mafia is an educated guessing game of epic proportions. The objective of the game (for the town majority) is to kill all mafia members before they outnumber the rest of the town. The game is typically very active, so the thread will get big quickly. However, it is essential to read the thread to play the game.

GENERAL RULES

0. The GM reserves the right to adjudicate individual scenarios that arise during the course of the game at his discretion.
1. All players must vote at least once per game day, and post at least twice per game day.
2. All players are forbidden from posting screenshots of their role PMs.
3. All players are forbidden from using encryption.
4. All players are forbidden from using non-sanctioned PMing, or copied mechanics.
5. All spectators and players who have been eliminated are forbidden from posting on all comment threads related to the game notes.
6. All players are forbidden from cheating.
7. All players are required to play to win.
8. Players and/or teams may not concede the game in public.
9. All players must not +1 other players' posts. However you are greatly encouraged to +1 any GM posts. In fact, I would say this is mandatory but I doubt most of you will read this little bit in here hehe...


ELABORATION

0. Given a lack of omniscience, the GM cannot create a rule to resolve all possible scenarios pre-emptively. To compensate for this, the GM is permitted to resolve a given scenario however they see fit, within the remit of the rules listed above, in the interest of all participants. The GM will resolve all scenarios as closely as possible to the intention of the rules, and will present an explanation regarding the adjudication to the greatest possible detail (which does not compromise anything in-game) and as closely in accordance with the written rules as possible.

1. You MUST cast a vote at least once during each day phase. You may vote and then 'unvote' (see below) if you change your mind as the Day progresses, however you may not end the phase with an 'unvote' in place. Anyone violating this rule will be modkilled unless there are very extenuating circumstances. Ending the day with a vote on “No Lynch” is permitted. During each day phase, every player MUST make at least two game-related posts. The GMs will use reasonable discretion when applying this rule.

2. All role PMs have been posted in the setup information. The point of this rule is to forbid "gaming" the role PMs to determine alignments; after all, the fun of this game is reading people, not outguessing the GM.

3. Encryption is defined as posting an encoded message on public channels that an average person would require outside software or other tools to decode. It is perfectly acceptable to leave "hidden messages" in your posts (for example, spelling out "I AM THE COP" with the first letters of every sentence), but as a rule of thumb, if you don't think the average user could decode it without a decryption service, don't post it.

4. All in-game communications should be kept within the thread. Only GM endorsed QuickTopic threads can be used for communicating with one another outside of the main game thread; aside from this, there should be no other forms of private messaging between players. You may PM the GM with questions or instructions.

5. Players who have been removed from the game are no longer playing the game, and will not be permitted to comment on it in private messages or comment threads. A special QuickTopic "God Thread" will be opened for individuals who wish to spectate on the game, or players who have been eliminated. Use this channel to discuss the game while it is still ongoing.

6. This is a catch-all rule intended to preserve the spirit of the game. If you are considering saying or doing something that may be against the spirit of the game, message the GM about it before saying/doing it and the GM will let you know whether it is allowed or not.
To clarify further: Players may not copy and paste any game related Mechanics. Players may not doctor, and create fake game related mechanics. Players may not share personal correspondence between GM to player under any circumstances. The GM will not confirm any claims, or adjudicate based upon anything that could easily be sorted out through questioning and evidentiary circumstance.
7. This rule simply means that your actions should in some conceivable way advance your win condition as stated in your role PM. This rule is somewhat subjective, because the difference between a mistake and sabotage is sometimes hard to determine; the GM will exercise caution and restraint in observing this rule. This also means that if you need to leave the game for any reason, you should not simply drop out, but should message me first so I can determine the best course of action.

8. If someone wishes to concede defeat, they must PM the GM, or post in their relevant QT thread for the GM to check it over. Public concessions are not permitted.

9. You are not permitted to click the "+1" on any other player's in-game posts. Giving +1s to the GM, by contrast, is actively encouraged. Like I said earlier, should be mandatory if you ask me...

PENALTIES

The penalty for breaking one of the above rules is decided at the GM’s discretion, up to and including immediate removal from the game and/or sanctions from future games. Removal and/or sanction are instruments of last resort and will be used only if absolutely necessary. Sanctions such as future bans will be determined by the consensus of the active player base after the game has concluded. A player removed from the game may or may not have their role revealed on removal, depending on the circumstances surrounding their removal.



MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

SPAM:
Spamming (defined as excessive content-free posting; or, excessive posting regarding subjects irrelevant to the game) is not mod-killed by rule in this game. The in-game voting mechanic exists to curb any advantage that spamming as a tactic may confer; please reference the “VOTING” section below for more information. Suffice to say that spamming is not worth anyone’s time in this setup, and will be frowned upon, so while you may not be lynched or mod-killed for spamming, please refrain from doing so.

PLAYER SILENCES:
Players that have other participants on their mute list are asked to remove them for the duration of this game. Disputes stemming from outside of this game should not carry over into the gameplay. If they do, the GM reserves the right to address these issues and potentially remove or sanction players if it becomes a disruption.

FORUM SILENCES:
If a player is silenced on the forum by the site moderators/admins, an alternate will take their place for the duration of their silence. The silenced player will then have the option to take their position back over or leave it in the hands of the alternate. As long as the silence does not stem from actions involving the mafia thread, there will be no in-game sanctions for a forum silence.

REPLACEMENTS:
A player wishing to drop out may be replaced at the GM's discretion. Individuals wishing to serve as potential replacements must NOT join the out-of-game God QT. Replacement is not guaranteed.

ROLE ACTIONS:
If you have any actions to take, please PM your action the GMs. Night actions will be processed at the end of the night and can be changed up to that point. Mafia's nightkill and roleblock will be voted on in the mafia chat.


VOTING

There are three types of voting within this game: collective voting to execute perceived Mafia in Day phases, collective voting to end a Day or Night phase, and Mafia voting to kill town members in Night phases.

“Lynch” vote: The first level of voting is for whom you intend to kill. Notate this vote with a pair of hash symbols before your intended vote target. (e.g., ##VOTE VECNA) You do not need to spell out your intended target's username fully; as long as the GM can understand who you're referencing. In the event of a tie during an execution vote, no one shall be killed.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not use double hashtags your vote will not be counted, for reasons of fairness but also because it is unlikely the GM will see your vote using the CTRL+F feature and this rule thus prevents vote miscounts.
Must Vote: At the end of the Day phase, all participating players must have their vote on a candidate. You may ##VOTE and then ##UNVOTE if you change your mind as the Day progresses, however you may not end the phase with an ##UNVOTE in place. Anyone violating this rule will be modkilled unless there are very extenuating circumstances. Ending the day with a vote on “No Lynch” is permitted.

Hammer Vote: The second level of voting is whether or not to employ the hammer mechanic. By default, days and nights are set to 24 hours long; however, players may instead elect to activate the hammer mechanic. Notate this vote with a pair of hashes before the word end. (EX: ##END). The day will end as soon as a majority of players are voting to endhammer. Please note that a majority of players on the same wafgon is NOT required, simply a majority end votes will end the day with the current vote totals. If you are not able to vote before the hammer is dropped, you will not be penalized for failing to vote during that day. Every player must vote end to activate hammer mechanic during night phases.

Mafia Vote: The third level of voting refers to Mafia members choosing their factional NK (nightkill) target during Night phases. The mafia members will use their separate QuickTopic thread to discuss this. Please make your votes in bold, like so: kill Zultar (< b > kill Zultar < / b >). Mafia NK will be decided by majority vote. In the event of a tie, the oldest vote will break the tie. The oldest vote determines which member of the Mafia team actually performs the kill, unless the mafia team designates someone to make the kill.

GM Team: Chaqa and worcej

Please send all questions, GM calls, night orders, etc. to both GMs.

4 Goons
Factional kill
Factional roleblock

1 Third Party:
1 Serial Killer

ROLE PMs:

Vanilla Town:
You are [REDACTED], a WebDip member! During the day you may make a cheating accusation against someone; the candidate which reaches a plurality will be banned at the end of the day. You have no night actions. You win once all mafia members and the serial killer have been eliminated, assuming that at least one town player survives to the end of the game.

Town Cop:
You are [REDACTED], the Town Cop! During the day you may make a cheating accusation against someone; the candidate which reaches a plurality will be banned at the end of the day. During the night you may select one player to investigate; at the end of the night you will be told whether that player is Innocent or Guilty, unless you are roleblocked. (The serial killer may or may not be considered Guilty; see the Serial Killer section for details.) You win once all mafia members and the serial killer have been eliminated, assuming that at least one town player survives to the end of the game. Additionally, you will receive a copy of the Vanilla Town role PM in the following message.

Town Doctor:
You are [REDACTED], the Town Doctor! During the day you may make a cheating accusation against someone; the candidate which reaches a plurality will be banned at the end of the day. During the night you may select one player to protect; if that player would otherwise be banned that night, the player’s ban will be appealed, unless you are roleblocked. You will be notified if your target was threatened with a ban that night, and your target will be notified that they were protected by the Doctor if they were saved (but not if they weren’t attacked). You may protect yourself, but may not protect the same person on subsequent nights. You win once all mafia members and the serial killer have been eliminated, assuming that at least one town player survives to the end of the game. Additionally, you will receive a copy of the Vanilla Town role PM in the following message.

Town Vigilante:
You are [REDACTED], the Town Vigilante! During the day you may make a cheating accusation against someone; the candidate which reaches a plurality will be banned at the end of the day. During the night you may select one player to ban; at the end of the night, if the player isn't saved by the doctor, that player will be banned, unless you are roleblocked. You have two shots for the entire game; after your second shot you will no longer be able to ban people. If you are roleblocked, you will be refunded for that shot; if your target is saved by the doctor, or you shoot the Serial Killer, you will not be refunded for that shot. You win once all mafia members and the serial killer have been eliminated, assuming that at least one town player survives to the end of the game. Additionally, you will receive a copy of the Vanilla Town role PM in the following message.

Mafia Goon:
You are [REDACTED], a Mafia Goon! During the day you may make a cheating accusation against someone; the candidate which reaches a plurality will be banned at the end of the day. During the night, you may talk to your mafia partners, vote on who to ban and vote on who to roleblock. Your mafia partners are <Mafia Partner A>, <Mafia Partner B>, and <Mafia Partner C>. The target of your factional roleblock WILL be notified that they have been roleblocked. You may vote not to ban someone and you may vote not to roleblock someone. You win once the serial killer has been eliminated and once either all of the town players are dead, or nothing can stop you from eliminating all of the town players. You scan as Mafia. Additionally, you will receive a copy of the Vanilla Town role PM in the following message. You may use, and must submit night actions to, this QuickTopic thread: <QuickTopic thread link>

Serial Killer:
You are [REDACTED], the Serial Killer! During the day you may make a cheating accusation against someone; the candidate which reaches a plurality will be banned at the end of the day. During the night, you may select one player to liberate from webDiplomacy’s establishment brainwashing; at the end of the night, if the player isn't saved by the doctor, that player will “voluntarily” self-ban, unless you are roleblocked. At the start of the game (by end of day 1) you must choose one enhancement: either night-kill immunity (you cannot be night-killed by Mafia or the Vigilante), or scan immunity (you will scan as town). You win once everyone else is dead. Additionally, you will receive a copy of the Vanilla Town role PM in the following message.

You may use, and must submit night actions to a Quick Topic Thread that Chaqa has setup but not given me yet... We'll PM it to you ASAP.

Also, as some of you may have noticed, this game does not have the [Hidden] tag in the title. That being said, it will be imperative that normal webDiplomacy forum rules must be followed during this game.

Please refrain from vulgar personal attacks and keep this game semi-PC. Or be incredibly creative with your attacks (shout out to the super creative ones in the group). The last thing we need is a moderator/admin to change the thread title and screw the bot up...

STILL DO NOT POST

M53: Mafia 1 Redux

To be clear, Chaqa has an actual intro post setup for his desired flavor, which will be used throughout this game. He plans to post it when he is available and not having an emergency. But for now, you get me!

Since I am kinda a weird dude, here is my version of the flavor, which has absolutely nothing to do with the actual history because this was well before my time playing and this actual forum:

Once upon a time, a group of people on an obscure yet fun web-based diplomacy game site decided they should try to start an online mafia game. They all enjoyed each other’s company and thought what could go wrong with starting a trend here?

“It’ll be fun!” one said.

“We’ll be all sneaky and stuff” another said out loud.

“We’ll be nice and respectful to each other and never get mean, because you know we’re all friends and such” someone else said in the background.

“Totally! Because we’re all friends here, right?” said the first, with a knife tucked behind his back.

Little did they know the chain of events they would spawn…
Welcome to M53: Mafia 1 Redux.

You may now post.
